Good Manufacturing Practice
GMP or Optimum Production Conditions: The purpose of developing these criteria is to guide producers to the minimum of good production conditions, its continuity and quality product production, and to ensure that products are manufactured in accordance with the standards appropriate to their application, production and control requirements. Consumer satisfaction in terms of quality, safety and efficiency. Holding this certification (GMP Certificate) demonstrates compliance with its guidelines by the holder of the certificate and thus assures the consumer of the quality of the product. The principles of GMP are control factors that focus on the whole production and quality operations, not on a specific process. GMP is the pillar of a healthy product that creates and maintains suitable infrastructure for production including machinery, environment, equipment, manpower, and so on. In 1938, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued the first guidelines for optimal production conditions, and in 1967, WHO prepared and released the initial version of GMP based on this guideline. The relevant committees of the organization are currently overseeing the editing of its global version. Various countries around the world apply the principles of this guideline in their laws and regulations and localize according to their local standards. The general conditions governing GMPs are the same in different countries because the WHO monitors the editing of international GMPs, but different countries change these principles slightly in accordance with their domestic laws, regulations and standards. In any country, the Food and Drug Administration, or its regulatory agencies, are responsible for issuing, extending, and revoking the authorization. Generally, depending on the policies of each government, these certificates have a limited validity for a specified period of time. Authorities can also suspend or revoke the license if violated by the laws and regulations in question.
